Rosemary Dunes Trail Description

The Rosemary Dunes Trail is one of six pathways in a network called Hugh Branyon Backcountry Trails running through Gulf State Park in southern Alabama. The trail begins on Beach Road, just off a sandy white beach and the Gulf of Mexico. From there, it travels east through scenic natural habitats under the cover of tall pine trees. You may even see an alligator in the marshy areas! The trail ends at Campground Road, where you can connect to the other trails via the Catman Road Trail. At this end, you'll find restrooms, picnic areas and a seasonal butterfly garden.

Parking and Trail Access

A small parking lot is available at the western trailhead off Beach Road, about 1 mile east of State Park Road 2.

Rosemary Dunes Trail Reviews

My grandson and I biked the Rosemary Dunes trail on evening of February 20, 2016. We spotted two(2) alligators and two(2) armadillas. We also seen several bird species and squirels. This was an interesting and fun trail. Highly recommend it.

Very flat, easy trail. I'm a wheelchair user and I've done this trail a few times in my chair without any problems. There are benches scattered along the trail for walkers as well as a couple of coered picnic tables near the western end of the trail. One note.... the trail is actually 2.1 miles from end to end, not 1.6.
